It is an Afghani folk song or tappa, sung by an anonymous singer. Later famous Pushto singer, Haroon Bacha, also sung it, but the credit goes to Rahim Shah who translated the "tappa" into Urdu and gave it his own arrangement. In a short span of time Rahim has proven his singing talent beyond all questions. He sang "Ghum" under the supervision of "Salman Alvi".
He recorded his album and tried to work hard on making it different from what others are churning out. The song turned out to be a huge hit and whosever listened to that song appreciated the touch. Rahim Shah was bitter over the recent plagiarism of his song by Indian singer Altaf Raja. He copied Rahim's song "Ghum" and gained popularity on satellite channels.
Eight of his albums have been released till date, of which, four are in Pushto and four in Urdu Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
